TAP SE­LEC­TION

Wall-mounted tap

Smaller bath­rooms will ben­e­fit from wall-mounted taps, which do not take up space on the basin, and pro­vide ad­e­quate space be­tween the tap’s spout and basin’s rim. How­ever, most ma­jor re­pairs will re­quire break­ing the wall or panel open, so keep this in mind when de­sign­ing your bath­room.

Basin-mounted tap

The sim­plest and most com­mon place to in­stall a tap is on the wash­basin; the sink will in­di­cate the best place­ment for taps. How­ever, this ar­range­ment tends to ac­cu­mu­late the most dirt and grime due to its close prox­im­ity to wa­ter. On the plus side, you’ll save on mov­ing or ex­tend­ing the pipe­line.

Stand-alone tap

These taps are placed at the side of a (typ­i­cally) round sink. If you have dou­ble wash­basins, place the mix­ers so the two are mir­ror im­ages of each other – it saves space and looks sleeker, too.
